  1. Project Title: Indigenous Cultural Awareness Training for Central Queensland University (CQU)

Concept: Create greater awareness amongst CQU students and employees about indigenous history, culture, languages and protocols. 

  1. Background

The School of Engineering and Technology (SET) Indigenisation Committee is interested in projects that promote student and staff understanding of indigenous perspectives and cultural awareness into SET unit curriculums.

The Committee discussed the idea of developing a cultural awareness training program for CQ University students and staff to better understand local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island history, culture, languages and protocols. One of the Committee members suggests such a project would be very complex. The Committee chair wants further information before raising the idea with the relevant funding body. Another Committee member suggests it would be good to have the training program released to coincide with the National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) week between 8th – 15th July 2018.

NAIDOC WEEK 2018: 8-15 JULY 

  1. Content and style of training

The School of Engineering and Technology (SET) Indigenisation Committee has requested cultural awareness training program include indigenous history, culture, languages and protocols. The Committee also requested the training program include both face to face and online training components. In addition, the training program should be tailored for the needs of CQ University students and employees.  

The School of Engineering and Technology (SET) Indigenisation Committee has indicated members of local Aboriginal and Islander communities be one of the key stakeholders in this project.  The Committee has requested that during the project any contact with these communities be undertaken in a respective and culturally appropriate manner.

You have been tasked to provide the Chair of the SET Indigenisation Committee with further information in relation to the project. The Chair will act as the Project Executive for the project.

 STAKEHOLDERS (10 Marks) 

2.1 Stakeholder ListKey Stakeholder List (6 MARKS)  

2.2 Stakeholders Engagement Assessment Matrix (3 marks)  Stakeholders Engagement Assessment Matrix  

2.2 Obtaining expert judgement (1 mark)  

QUESTION: Briefly explain at least two different methods or techniques to obtain this expert judgement from groups and/or individuals? The two different methods or techniques are explained below in order to obtain expert judgement from various group or individuals. The two different techniques or methods include:

 Quantitative Technique: It is identified that quantitative technique is mainly used for analyzing whether the stakeholder are able to perform different amount of duties within specific period of time. Moreover, this technique can be utilized for analyzing the performance of the stakeholder as per the workload that is assigned to them.

Qualitative Technique: It is identified that qualitative technique is mainly utilized for analyzing the performance of the stakeholder in context to quality of output that is provided as a part of duty within the project.3IREMENTS MANAGEMENT (5 marks)3.1.1     Traditional Owner/s of the land on which CQ University campuses are located (1 mark). 

QUESTION: State whether it is appropriate to have a single key stakeholder representing the Traditional Owners of the land on which Central Queensland Campuses are located. Provide an explanation for your response.  It is analyzed that it is not appropriate to have a single stakeholder who mainly takes the responsibility of representing the traditional owners of the land on which the campus of central Queensland is located.

This is because one individual person cannot be able to take the entire responsibility of representing the various campuses of the universities at a time as the selected stakeholder can represent as well as evaluate only one particular campus at a single time only. If the stakeholder is to present ass the lands of the Queensland campuses then the person will have to analyse various conditions that are associated with each of the campuses and thus the time that the person will get in collecting data as well as information about each campus is less which ensures that the collected that can be inaccurate.

Hence, it is quite preferable to select one stakeholder from each of the campus of Central Queensland so that they can be able to represent only one land of ownership. 3.1.2 Opening statement style (1 mark)

QUESTION: Which of the two opening statement styles ‘Welcome to Country’ or ‘Acknowledgement of Country’ is appropriate for the Project Executive to use and provide a brief explanation justifying your answer.  It is identified after analyzing the entire problem that Acknowledgement of country will be very much appropriate for the entire opening statement of the program as “welcomes to Country” is more  suitable for the foreigners but not for the indigenous people because they are the people who mainly prefers to be acknowledged their existence within the country.3.1.3     Requirements gathering for training package (1 mark)

NAIDOC WEEK 2018: 8-15 JULY

QUESTION: Is the suggestion of using a previously developed cultural awareness training program an appropriate method of requirements gathering? Briefly explain your answer.It is identified that previously developed indigenous cultural awareness training program is not considered as an appropriate method of requirement gathering. This is because the previous model can only be utilized in the template but the contents of the two training programs are quite different from each other and each of the detail needs to be changed that is not possible by searching the internet appropriately.3.1.4 Requirements traceability (.5 mark)

QUESTION: What document could be used to track or ‘trace’ requirements throughout the project life cycle?   It is identified that a central resource log database can be utilized for using the platform of cloud. Once the resources are used, the site manager of the project will enter within the server for automatically updating the central resource log that is generally set up within the central cloud system. 3.1.5 Requirements prioritization process (1 mark) The project board are concerned they may have competing requirements from a number of stakeholders. To manage this they would like to define a requirement prioritisation process that can be shared with all stakeholders prior to requirements gathering. 

QUESTION: What is requirement prioritisation and why would it be important to communicate this process to stakeholders? It is identified that requirement prioritization is one of the procedure with which the resources are provided to the stakeholder that is based on the priority of the duty within the project. Hence, if any type of competing requirements arises, a priority plan must be created where the various tasks must be arranged in context to priority. Thus the resources are generally assigned to the tasks with the highest priority.3.1.6 MoSCoW Technique (.5 mark)

QUESTION: List the five components of the MoSCoW technique The various five components of the MoSCoW technique are as follows:

  • Must have

  • Would have

  • Could have

  • Should have

  • oS for easing the pronunciation

   4 SCOPE (10 marks)The scope of the project is divided into in-scope as well as out scope. In-scope: The in-scope of the project is as follows:

  • Spreading indigenous culture among other natives as well as foreign students

  • Raising cultural awareness among various faculties as well as students

  • Conducting cultural awareness program

  • Acknowledging indigenous culture with the help of the program

Previous lessons learned

Proposed action to address

(in current project)

Lesson 1

The first lesson involved an ‘off-the-shelf’ online training program which failed to properly interface with the universities learning system.

 It is quite important to install proper information system within the organization which have very high speed of internet connection

Lesson 2:

The second lesson involved the use of a generic cross cultural training package which failed to properly address the nuances which exists between different indigenous groups located in various geographical areas.

 It is very much necessary to invite people from different indigenous culture background who have proper in-depth knowledge about various indigenous culture and tradition.
